Over 8.000 infringements due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus, has been confirmed by the police since Monday 23 Of March, imposed by the government.
Some, as the numbers prove, not only do they refuse to comply with the measures because of the spread of the virus, but they invent ways to circulate, believing that the coronavirus does not touch them.
Tragic incidents have taken place all this time, which if nothing else caused laughter. Typical is the case of a Chalkidean who sent a message to 13033 with the number 6, for physical exercise that is, but was found by the Police coming out of a barbecue in Chalkida, loaded skewers, kontosouvlia and steaks.
When the police checked him, showed the message that allowed him to exercise. The police, of course, told him that there was no "walk" on the grill from the message, to receive the answer: "Or I had a little bit of exercise and said I should get something for home".
The response to the Police also caused laughter to tears, of an elderly man who was walking in P.. Faliro and who had no paper on him, which certifies the cause of the exits.
However, he had a serious cause, as he explained to the Police to get out of his house, as if he was sitting again with his wife then… he would be handcuffed for criminal activity, as he said he could not bear the moaning. Of course he did not avoid the fine, but won the sympathy of the Police.
